    I like the louvers, has anybody put louvers on a Hellcat? Seems that Z would have a real problem, getting over a speedbump, our 'cats are low enough as it is, but that Chevy has way less clearance!

    I love my Dodge products, but for the life of me, I'm not sure why they didn't go with a more aggressive look for the Hellcat models. Flaired fenders, wider wheels, and so on. Aside from the hood, there's very little difference in the lower SRT models that sets them apart from a Hellcat.

    Those are 2 sexy cars. I look forward to the day I can add one of those to my collection.

    I'm guessing it was the cost which would have taken the car out my price range. BTW, The bottom one inch of the Z-28's splitter was a soft rubber. 3 1/2 inches to the bottom of the rubber on the splitter to the ground.

    Fair enough Profezzor X. I like the '71 Challenger representation and the subtle clean look without the bling. The aggression can be found under the hood! B

    Those are some badass pics right there. P Zero R in white letters? I love that!!! Louvers are good looking as well. My favorite color white and it sure does sit low.
    Nice, very nice.

    I get that part, and the performance to back it up, but what's stopping someone with an SRT from creating a Hellcat clone, simply by swapping out their hood with a Hellcat hood.

    I guess what I'm saying is that there's hardly anything distinguishing about the Hellcat visually, compared to other SRT models. At least with BMW, they added wider fenders and other unique styling cues on their M3's that made them unique from the lower models, and you knew those changes couldn't be accomplished with some simple bolt on parts you can swap out. Now by no means would I ever give up a Hellcat for a Bimmer. The BMW just stands out in my mind as a manufacture that makes obvious distinctions between their model classes, and makes it very difficult for enthusiasts and copy cats to clone those "M" looks.

    I just wished Dodge did the same with the Hellcat, that's all... Maybe not go all out with something too radical, but do something so unique and simple to sheet metal of the body that you'd need body work done to duplicate that unique look.

    Z28 rims are much nicer......not hating the HC rims, but i think they could have done better....especially on the spray paint finish.....also digging the Z28 louvers

    hc has its own front end and 2 extra vents in the hood....its more unique than the old SRT 392 was......from a glance SE's with stripes looked just like SRT's

    im glad Dodge did something unique at least...ill take a grill

    Great pics, but neither of those cars were built in Detroit, or even the US....

    Challengers are built in Brampton, Ontario and Camaros are built in Oshawa, Ontario (at least for now...).

    Totally dig the side stripes. You event went old school with the scat pack bee decals in the quarter windows. Those bees were the first mod I did to my car as soon as it arrived.
    I was thinking of doing the MOPAR '14 stripe on my HC. But I did the same thing to my 392 with the side stripes, and the '13 392 had the bees in the quarter windows too.
    Looking good.

    I have a Chevy work truck and went to the Chevy dealer for service. They had an all black Z-28 on the floor, since I waited for the service I decided to check it out. Very nice car BUT>>>>>>>>
    it was marked up to 75K had 505 horse power, no back seat room small truck and the front splitter was too low, this one was already damaged ( parts on order).

    I did drool over it, it has good styling and seems well built nice paint.......

    no chance that I would ever consider getting one unless I win the lotto and have cash coming out of my butt.
